Card of the Week - Old Hoss

Charles "Old Hoss" Radbourn. Hall of Famer. Boston Beaneater. 300 game winner. 60 of those wins (give or take a win or two) came in ONE SEASON. Pitched 73 complete games that year. Was a grouchy old drunk, which is the best kind of drunk. Threw a wicked curve underhanded. A charley horse is named after him. Really knew how to pose for a picture. Greatest contribution to American culture: the very first person to ever flip a bird in a photograph. Lost an eye in a hunting accident. Died of syphillis at the age of 42.

And now, Old Hoss Radbourn Twitters from the Grave

This is pretty much the best thing ever.
